About The Women’s Foundation of California

The Women’s Foundation of California is a statewide public foundation dedicated to achieving gender, racial, and economic justice by centering the experience and expertise of communities most impacted by systemic injustice.

Our Vision

We work to invest intrain, and connect community leaders to advance gender, racial, and economic justice. We do this by providing grants to small community-led organizations, training community leaders through the Women’s Policy Institute, and fostering a community of advocates, donors, policymakers, grantmakers, academics and many others through convenings to share knowledge and strengthen the social justice movement in California.

Unlike private foundations, which are endowed with funds from a family’s wealth or corporate earnings, community foundations gather their financial contributions from the public — from individuals, families, and businesses who want to support social change. Learn more about our work by browsing through this website, sign up for our email alerts, follow us on Facebook, or Twitter, and if possible, make a donation. By making a tax-deductible charitable donation to The Women’s Foundation of California, you join many others who are dedicated to our mission of shaping a just and equitable California.
